I am writing about minimal web design, and these are the first lines I wrote:

Minimalism was one of the major web design trends throughout the 2010s. And it likely won't fade away in the 2020s because it's a fundamentally solid concept.

I want to say 'minimalism won't go away because minimalism is a good concept to build websites upon.' The way I've written my sentence, it seems I am saying, 'Minimalism is a fundamentally solid concept, but that won't affect its popularity.' Or am I reading it wrong, and the sentences are perfectly alright for communicating the message I want to communicate?

    Your sentences look fine to me to express the meaning you intend. The fact that it is a 'solid concept' is the reason why you think it won't fade away. Mar 14, 2022 at 8:16
  • @KateBunting, thanks for your response :) I'll keep it as it is then. Mar 14, 2022 at 12:00
  • Though the word alright gets a pass for being common, it's no different from all right, the original form. And starting your second sentence with And already startles the reader. Only already and altogether are solid for their distinct meanings from 'all ready' and 'all together'. Mar 14, 2022 at 13:52
